's, Buffered from the pangs of nervous dyspepsia. After eating there was a full, heavy feeling, like weight in the stomach, and when the stom ach was empty there was a faint, all-gone feeling that caused palpitation of the heart, and a terrible, uncomfortable, suffocating sensation. lie had shooting pains in the pit of the stomach, chest and sides ; was very nervous, blue and melancholv. Everything eaten soured and distressed him. He was run down in flesh, and when he applied to Dr. Smith, the magnetic physician, 19 North Washington street, he was utterly discouraged and believed that nothing or no one could cure him. From the first magnetic treatment given him he commenced to improve, and from that time (two months ago) he steadily got better, until to-day he is perfectly well. lie can eat any kind of food without the slightest trouble, sleeps and feels well and is, in fact, in every way a sound man. From the first, he has never lost a day's work. Mr. Erown will answer any letters or questions m regard to his restoration to health. Dr. Smith is permanently located at 19 North Washington street.

Petition to the Executive Board From the Citizens' Committee. The Upton Park improvement is still giving the Executive .Board trouble. The following communication signed by the citizens' committee was yesterday presented to the board through Alderman Lewis : Rochester, July 14, 1891. Gentlemen of Vie Executive Board: We leg leave to submit the following statement to more clearly define the position Of the Upton Park paviair matter: Every resident, by preference, would like the red brick as per original cample. Five or six persons, of 24(1 feet frontage, are content to allow contractors to lay what they please and abide results. The balance, representing 7ti0 feet, are pronounced in their d mands for the brick, like samples originally submitted. We submit that a eo-callea scicntiuc test of a few brick, no matter how fairly chosen, cannot possibly determine the value of the reniainimr Zn.'OJ bricks; that a scientific tost, is of little value iu determining- the result of tho elements and actual use. The red biiek as per sample have been subject to the only test of any earthly value, that of actual use. The yellow clay brick have, by admission of the makers, never been mado until within a few weeks "nd no one knows the result that will follow actual use. All brick are to a certain extent experimental and untried brick especially so. We do not want experiments with a brick of which r.othinif is known, no matter how tfood it apparently is. We want the brick that have already been testoU.which were promised us.and samples of which were placed on file in your office and that of the city engineer. The claim made toy all pavinu- orieu makers is. that it is the presence of iron and aluminum that (fives them their peculiar value. The manairer of the t-yracuse isricK tompany admitted before you that the yellow clay from which these vellow brick are made contained no Iron whatever and was not prepared to sav that it contained anv aluminum. He also admitted that his company had never sent out a yellow brick for a sample. Must we be tho first to make a practical test of the untried clay? Are we not morally and legally entitled to just what we bought and not something which may appear to be" Just as good r me answer is in your nanas. POSTOFFICE BUSINESS.

No more monthly reports of the business of the ollice will be issued, as the collection of statistics regarding the number of pieces of mail matter handled by the carrier has been discontinued. The order di recting the discontinuance of this practice applies only to the collection and distribution of local mail. The number of pieces of out-going mail will be reported as heretofore. Yesterday the four mounted mail collec tors who were appointed last spring made their trips in new vehicles constructed for their special use. The new cart consists of a box about four feet wide and six feet long mounted on two wheels. The collector enters the cart from the rear, there being boxes at the sides and front for the reception of mail. At the back is a movable leather seat for the use of the carrier. The cart is mado with what is termed a drop-coach axle which brings the body near the ground. Over all is a canopy top with curtains which may be raised or lowered at will. On the sides of the box are the words U. S. Mail. ' The carts are impr6ved patterns of those in use in Detroit and were made by A. F. & S. C. Stewart of this city. The body of each cart is painted a dark green and the running gear a bright red. Suit by Harmon's Assignee. Through Browning & Marsh, an action has been brought by Aldice G. Warren, as assignee ot George E. Harmon, against the Union Bunk to recover about $20, 000. The plaintiff's complaint alleged that Harmon hud on deposit $5, 000 as a special deposit in the bank in June, 18S3, and a mortgage on which there was nn unpaid balance of $13, 000. The bank claims to hold the cash and mortgage as collateral security for the payment of the Cole notes endorsed by Harmon, of which it hel l about $18,000 at the time of his failure, there being at that time, as is claimed by the assignee, nearly $20, 000 of his money aud securities in the bank. The assignoe claims this amount on the ground that the notes held by the bank were void and constituted no legal claim against the fund. Report From the Reservoirs.

Boys at THE FIRST DETAIL FOR GUARD Captain Hess as Officer of the Day-First Separate Company's First Experience of Battalion Drill. Hot Work But They Like It. Correspondence of Democrat and Cnnosicn. State Camp of Instruction, ' Peekskill, N. Y. , July 14th. f The First Separate Company had its first taste of the more serious requirements of camp life yesterday. All the morning, or to be more exact, from 5 o'clock to noon, was taken up with inspection, skirmishes and battalion drill, to the last of which the men had been looking forward with about the same anticipation that some inevitable calamity might arouse. But they not only survived the drill, one and all, but seem to think that in time they might grow to like it. Indeed, they are greatly elated over the success with which they met the numerous difficulties that must necessarily confront any company the first time in camp, especially a separate company that has no opportunity for battalion drill at any other time. Unaccustomed, as the men are, to such violent exercises under a boiling sun, it came pretty hard, but none suocumbed either front heat or fatigue, though four men from the Twelfth Regiment, out at the same time, gave work for the ambulance corps. The first is th j color company of the pro-vissional battalion, and the boys strove hard and well to keep up the dignity and importance of position. This Bhould please the hearts of the many ladies who did so much to enable us to buy our beautiful new flag. The skirmish drill in the cool of the early morning was much more pleasant though not quite so much of a novelty as battalion drill, for the boys havo been practiced in this twice a week for some months before coming down, the only difference being in the interval taken between skirmishers. It was an interesting sight to see the long lines deploying ; nearly lost to sight one minute in the veil of mist that Btiil overhung the whole parade ground and appearing the next' to assemble and move forward or by the flanks to gain some desired position. Many were the remarks made to the effect that "if the people at home could only see this they would appreciate as they never could at home what the National Guard of New York really is. ' ' Companies come here to work and not play, and they do work good, honest and conscientious work too, every maa taking an interest in his company and striving to reach a continually higher plane of perfection. So though the requirements in some respects are irksome, personal feeling is sacrificed for discipline and the axiom that a soldier's first duty is to obey is the war-cry. If ever there is need for the service of the militia citizens will then, if never before, appreciate that the National Guard is a factor in the civilization of this country that cannot and will not be disregarded. Captain Hess is officer of the day to-day, and Lieutenant Turpin will be in command of the company. The company also furnishes a guard detail for the first time with Sergeant Warriner as eeuior sergeant of the guard, and Corporal Doty with the detail made up as follows : Privates McVean, Bryson, Briggs, Cory, Cossett, Dodge, Esser, Goold, Schantz, and Hanford as supernumerary. This is the first appearance of the battalion on guard duty, and it is their openly declared intention to show the regiment ideal guard duty. There is considerable friendly rivalry between the regiment and battalion. Yesterday was rather more busy than the other two so far as amusement is concerned. In the afternoon there was a very exciting game of ball between nines selected from Doring's Band and the Sixth Separate from Troy, in which the musicians demonstrated that there is more than one thing they can play, winning in the lost inning by one run. To-morrow the First.which captured the pennant last winter at indoor base bail, will cross bats with the Sixth. After dress parade foot ball and tennis were indulged in, but the camp did not really get awake until it should have been asleep, and late last night shouts of dillerent company yells mingled with the airs from several amateur concerts and the whole camp seemed fairly teeming with good spirits, not, however, of a liquid order. The men are all well and have not failed to report at every roll-call, and the captain is pleased beyond measure at tho good work. To all curious friends we wish to be remem bered, although this seems unnecessary if one may judge from the number of letters re ceived enclosed in envelopes not of a shape commonly used for business purposes. STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. A Woman Knocked Senseless and a Street Car Touched. During the storm yesterday afternoon Mrs. Joyce, of CamDbell Place, was 6truck by the lightning and was rendered uncon scious lor a time, but was not seriously injured. She was in a room on the ground floor of her home and the bolt came tearing down through tho roof and second story of the house, doing considerable damage on the way. The roof was torn up and every bit of plaster on the ceiling of the chamber through which the bolt passed was knocked off as cleanly as though it had been out off with a knife. Mrs. Joyce was thrown to the floor by the shock. She was picked up insensible by her husband, and Dr. Earl, who happened to be in the neighborhood, was summoned to attend her. She recovered consciousness soon and, although a delicate woman, did not appear to be much the worse for her experience. An electrio car which was standing at the end of the Mt. Hope avenue line was also struck by the lightning, but no damage was tlone to it. The current burned out the lightning arrester and passed harmlessly away. The magnetic disturbance was unusually violent during the storm. At about ; o'clock, the hour at which young Long fellow, whose death is noted iu another column, was struck by the lightning at East Rush, the magnetic needle iu the weather observer' a office was deflected over seven dosrees.

Act was Premeditated. Coroner Graham concluded the inquest last evening into the cause of the death of Mrs. Agnes Tice, killed by her husband lag. Saturday. John Joslyn, an Id acquaiat. I ance of Tice, testified to seeing him sharpen. ing a knife upon an emery wheel t the sash factory of Brown & Maser last Friday. Charles Kehi, at whose hon Mrs. Tice was employed at the time of tug ? murder, corrolorated the Btory of previwu ' witnesses relative to the occurrence itntut diately after Tice had made his tnurderoui assault. Kehl said that he met the latter in the morning and that he was under th influence of liqnor. Officer John Dana testified to threap ; made by Tice that he would "get even'' with hia wife as the time of hii arrest several weeks ago. The witness nij ! that he saw Tice at the jail last Saturday t ? few hours after the murder. He was lyin, t in a drunken stupor on las coat. jl- Officer Dana said that while bringing Tic ' to the police station for examination Laj ' Monday morning the latter asked how Lij wife was getting along and at which ho. pital Bhe was. Tice did not know then that his wife was dead. Stephen Hibretsen, of No. 113 Haywood '-Park, a fellow-workman of Tice, said that the latter was at work until Friday. came to the shop on that day and the wit. ness saw him sharpening a knife at tbt emery wheel. When asked what ha in. ' tended to do with the knife Tice said that it ! was for cutting belts. Hibretsen thought that the knife shown him by the coroner was the one he saw in Tice's hands.
